Sebastopol Wine Tasting Menu

By Appointment Only



Your wine tasting with Halleck does not take place in a traditional Sebastopol tasting room. This is our home, and inviting you in is a gesture of intimacy. This family-owned and friendly setting is what makes our wine tasting in Sonoma County so special.



The 1 acre estate vineyard that surrounds our house was the first in the Sebastopol region, and as pioneers in the area, we feel particularly qualified to share what makes it so special.

You'll learn about the magic of this wine growing region, from the famed morning fog that blankets our hills, to the soil content from the Sonoma Coast to the Russian River Valley that lends such diversity and character to our wine tastings.



Our mission is Building Community Through Wine, employing these extraordinary fruits of the earth. So be prepared to learn, explore, and form meaningful connections through this very personal 90 minute wine tasting experience.

We believe in shared experiences, and making the world a better place. We’ve raised over three quarters of a million dollars for the charities supported by our wine club members. Being able to make that difference is what gets us up in the morning.

Wine tasting is an inner journey, and we hope to guide you and join you on that journey – so you can determine for yourself which wines breathe magic into your glass and even your soul.

Halleck Vineyard Owner Jennifer Halleck

We want your wine tasting in Sonoma County to be a comfortable one. If you're looking for where to stay in Sonoma for wine tasting, ask about our our newly remodeled private suite.

Above all, come to Halleck Vineyard with curiosity and interest in Sonoma Wineries – and be prepared to thoroughly enjoy yourself.



The coastal breeze and morning fog often give way to hot sunny afternoons in Sonoma Country, which means you need to be prepared for any weather. That’s why we recommend you dress in layers on the day you join us – and bring sunscreen just in case.

When choosing your outfit, it’s often best to opt for darker colors or patterns that can help hide wine spills should they occur. It’s also best to wear comfortable shoes for your tour of our Sebastopol estate vineyard.



Since smell is a huge part of the tasting experience, you don’t want any scents competing for your attention. So please skip the perfume or cologne. Lipstick or flavored lip balms can also interfere. You may also wish to avoid coffee, breath mints and smoking right before your tasting, as these can mask flavors as well.



Our African Basenji Franki is a nonshedding, hypoallergenic dog who enjoys hosting other pups on our estate, which is 100% fenced to prevent deer from eating our grapes. So if you're dog is socialized, wants to run free and play with other dogs, this Sonoma wine tasting experience is going to be a lot of fun for you and your best friend. Our dog Franki is friendly, but also very independent. He does not beg or demand affection. Halleck Vineyard is a dog-friendly estate, and we tend to resonate with dog lovers. We even have a Halleck Vineyard Dog Club. So if you can’t bring your dog, bring a picture.
